From the Author

From the Preface by the author:

My doctor leafed through page after page of my medical chart--EEG results, neurological exams, evoked potential tests. . . . I had undergone two weeks of tests hoping to learn what was causing the spasms, numbness, tingling, and other neurological symptoms that had left me barely able to walk on my own. "Well, Ann," he said, "the good news is, you don't have cancer. The bad news is . . . you have multiple sclerosis." With those words, I became a statistic, one of an estimated three million people worldwide--500,000 in the United States alone--who are afflicted by the debilitating disease of multiple sclerosis.

". . . incurable . . . experiment with chemotherapy . . . slow the inevitable deterioration. . . ."

He went on speaking, but I was in such shock that his words made no sense to me. Traditional Western medicine had failed to cure me of serious mononucleosis five years earlier. I had no confidence that it could help me now.

I left his office, and after two weeks of physical suffering, mental turmoil, and emotional torture, I turned my back on the traditional medical treatments for MS. I was only twenty-four, and terrified, but I refused to accept the prospect of spending my life in a wheelchair. "I will not be another MS statistic," I promised myself. And slowly, bit by bit, I created my own self-care program based on integrative medicine methods.

Four tumultuous years later, I reversed MS.

You must understand that health is more than just the physical body. Health means a balance of the body, mind, emotions, and spirit. When you experience a chronic disease, all facets of the self must be examined. This means moving beyond the symptoms to address diet, lifestyle, stress, exercise, negative thoughts, fear-based emotions, and self-limiting belief systems.

Eventually, I hope, the usual paradigm in Western medi­cine will shift to a realization that even if two people have the same disease, they must be treated as individuals based on the knowledge that each person's history is unique, that health is more than just treating the physical body, and that it is essen­tial to go to the root cause. Then cures will be the rule, not the exception to the rule.

Most important, health is a choice. Yes, the body has an innate inner intelligence that works at keeping itself balanced through the process known as homeostasis. But this is not enough to maintain health if you are making unhealthy choices, entertaining negative thoughts, bombarding your body with depleted foods, overwhelming it with stress, and holding on to fear-based emotions. Whenever you make the apparently simple choice of what to eat each day, you are actually choosing whether you want health--or not.

Even as I took the first steps on my healing journey, it was clear to me that I would be moving not only toward achieving recovery, but also toward helping others to move through the complexities of autoimmune disease. Today I am a nutritionist and naturopath with a fifteen-year practice, during which I've seen thousands of clients for various health conditions. Based on both my personal and my professional experience, it is my responsibility, and my passion, not just to educate you about the causes of MS and how to reverse it, but also to inspire you with the knowledge that you can triumph.

Society, your family, and your peers have more or less con­ditioned you to believe that you are powerless when it comes to MS--that drugs are your only option for living with this diagnosis. That is not so. There is a hidden truth to healing that has always been with us. This truth is the incredible in­dividual power you possess to transform yourself--your body, your spirit, your mind, and your emotions. Making a choice to become healthy and then backing it up with belief and convic­tion are the keys to coming into your own power and turning around any disease.

This book is presented in four sections:

  • Part One, "My Healing Journey," recounts my personal transformational journey and how I cured MS.
  • Part Two, "The Real Cause of Multiple Sclerosis," describes all the causes of MS.
  • Part Three, "You Can Heal Yourself: The Solutions," explains the solutions and why they are effective.
  • Part Four, "Your Treatment Plan," gives you user-friendly charts, recipes, and exercises so you can create your own self-help treatment program.
